“poem” broadside #353 : “notes for a job interview,” by Kate Hargreaves



small successes are often fluke
and greeting cards demand only so much text
if you can’t chop onions finely enough

and limit reproduction to Xerox and cover tunes
settle for describing the texture of a bitten lip

rough, damp, and threatening to split




notes for a job interview
by Kate Hargreaves
